Free, Family Friendly, Fine Art Festival
 
(Narragansett) Wakefield Rotary Club presents the 35th annual Narragansett Art Festival, on Saturday June 24th and Sunday June 25th, 2017 from 9: am to 7: pm. It takes place at Veterans Park, 35 Ocean Road next to the Historic “Towers”.  The Art Festival is a non juried high quality fine art exhibition, managed by volunteers since 1982.
 
Over 60 artists return from previous years, with a total of 98 artists registering last year for the event.  The artists come from New England, New York and Pennsylvania.  Ed McLaughlin, Chair of the Art Festival said recently, “Wakefield Rotary Club’s 35th annual Narragansett Art Festival is clearly a highlight of the summer season in South County.  This Festival brings together over 100 artists from the Northeast as well as thousands of visitors from Rhode Island and surrounding states”.
 
The net proceeds from the artists’ registration fees support the Wakefield Rotary Clubs’ scholarship program.  This program provides three 4-year scholarships to local high school graduates.  Over 120 students from South Kingstown, Narragansett, and Prout have benefited from the scholarship program.
